Hublot – Big Bang Unico Sapphire | (Pre-Basel 2016)12 February 2016
After the ambitious MP05 “LaFerrari” Sapphire project, Hublot presents the new Big Bang unico Sapphire.
The case middle, bezel and back of the Big Bang Unico Sapphire are cut from blocks of sapphire. Hublot has called on the expertise of a Swiss specialist as part of an exclusive partnership to develop the unique material. Only a few pieces forming the spine of the watch are made from titanium: the screws, the crown, which is over-molded with silicon, and the deployant buckle. Its skeleton dial, made from transparent resin, reveals all the gears of the proprietary Unico HUB1242 movement and its finishes. Complementing its ethereal silhouette, its strap – transparent – is invisible so that the skin can be seen through it.
Available as a 500-piece limited edition, the Big Bang Unico Sapphire is water-resistant to 50 metres.
A minimalist style, a very light timepiece, an inevitable new trend.
